Welcome to NFS-Ganesha Wiki
This is an Open Source project with an active community of both company sponsored and independent developers. This Wiki is the primary location for all current information about the project and its software releases.
Our current release is Version 2.0. This is a significant update with lots of new features and improved stability and protocol correctness. We recommend that users upgrade to this version. See the Release Notes for details.
Our previous release is Version 1.5. Users of this and earlier releases are urged to upgrade as we are unable to devote resources to fix issues with this release.
This last release cycle was long (over 18 months). We are moving to a much shorter release cycle of no more than 6 months. Our tentative schedule for Version 2.1 is January-February 2014. See the V2.1 page for the details.
Our supported releases are available as tarball downloads. See the Download Page for details. Official tarballs are also available by clicking through the Releases button on the repository's top page.
We (obviously) use git for our source management. Our official development tree is maintained on Github nfs-ganesha. Individual developers have their own git repositories, most of them on Github, for publishing their changes to the community. See the Developer Area for details. The Release Notes describe source availability in greater detail. In particular, all our releases going forward are marked by signed tags.
git clone git://github.com/nfs-ganesha/nfs-ganesha.gitinstead for anonymous clones.
As our user base and development community have expanded, we have had to put some order to how we develop, release, and support our work. Our Development Policies page describes how we go about our business, developing Open Source software.
User and developer information can be found here.
The community maintains an active, open IRC channel on Freenode #ganesha. Most of our developers keep in touch on this channel.
We also maintain an email list on https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/nfs-ganesha-devel. Release announcements, technical discussions, and user questions are handled here.
Some of these links are approaching obsolete but they are still of interest.
